Absolutely. But you have to start with the total number of QBs signed, just like we start from the total drafted.
What's the total number of players coming from a particular source, and then how many of those actually amount to something? Based on this, UDFA have, by far, the longest odds of anyone. Why? Because these players generally suck shit.
The few successes make for great stories, though, but talent evaluation has improved enough that looking to history for the grocery baggers of the world is misleading in the modern NFL.
